School Shooting in Parkland, Florida

Breaking story via the BBC - reports of multiple casualties with a shooter still inside the school.

edit: report from Fox News:
Quote:
Authorities also said students and teachers should remain barricaded in the school until they could be reached by police

Dispatch at the Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed the school was on lockdown and police were on location.

According to WSVN, the Margate Fire Rescue team described the scene as a mass casualty incident, which reportedly means at least 20 people were injured.

Or they could try something useful like reforming gun laws, but no, that would make sense.

Florida Senator saying "many people" have been killed.

Person of interest arrested but not confirmed the individual is the shooter.

Just put on CNN there it's pretty disgusting the coverage IMO. Parents of students on the phone live reading out the texts they are getting and saying where the kids are hiding and how many are there. The reporter acting concerned while trying to milk as much information out of them as possible. What is wrong with people? I mean, if that was my child it wouldn't occur to me to call the news. Ffs

Just hearing on Sky News that it's the 13th shooting so far this year and there have been over 300 since 2013! God needs to get his finger out of his arse and start answering those prayers!
